Have dear friends heading for the central coast this weekend, staying at the Cliffs. They'll be touring wineries around the Edna Valley area and are looking for a really good evening meal. They'll dine one night at the hotel and would like something nearby for the other. They know about and have been to Chef Rick's many times (as well as Jocko's, Far Western) which is probably a little further south than they'd like to travel.
Is there anything else in the 5 cities area for great food? I've suggested Taco Temple in MB for lunch and know that Windows on the Water would be good. SLO would be closer but I've only been to a few places (Buono Tavola). Hearing a lot on the board lately about Park being the best in town. Given that money is no object would that be the general agreement? TIA
